Crawford Company recently completed the manufacture and installation of two stainless steel cyclones for PCS Phosphate, Marseilles, IL. The new units replaced the original carbon steel cyclones that were failing due to abrasion and corrosion. The cyclones collect the rock duct dust that contains weak phosphoric acid. The stainless steel cyclones will eliminate the corrosion aspect and also be more resistant to abrasion.
Crawford was responsible for field measurements, design and fabrication of the new vessels. Our experienced welders made the cyclones in our newly expanded metal fabrication facility.In addition, Crawford Company's field crew planned and executed the removal of the old cyclones and the installation of the new units during a plant shut down. This project is another example of Crawford's diverse group of employees working together with customers to complete a project on time and with in budget.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING
I am writing to acknowledge the quality serviceman employed by Crawford Co. I am a 65 year old woman whose husband was out of town. I came home at eleven p.m. with the temperatures at minus nine degrees to a broken furnace. The house was at 59 degrees and I didn’t have a clue what to do. I called my husband who walked me through a couple of simple options to try to jump start the furnace. When that failed, he suggested I call Crawford. Thankfully, a serviceman called me back. I didn’t want him to come out again in the cold, so I asked him if he could talk me through a possible easy fix. He tried so patiently to help me and then decided it would be best for him to come to the house. As grateful as I was he was willing to drive from DeWitt, I was nervous about having a stranger come to the house in the middle of the night. (Old ladies worry about that.) First and foremost, when you call Crawford you can be sure of quality service, I know that. The young man, Drew, came promptly to the house and handled the situation as you would expect him to do. What was exemplary was his understanding of my upset and was pleasant, confident, capable and very reassuring. In the middle of the bitterly cold night, this man explained what he was doing in “my” terms, totally repaired and cleaned the furnace, checked flues outside and made me feel safe and warm. Those are things that company training cannot instill in a person. I thank Crawford for employing this man and I thank Drew for helping me when I was most upset.My hope is that he would be recognized and rewarded for his abilities to do his job, but also his kindness and understanding of people.
